Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Foam Review

Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Foam is a fluffy cleansing foaming wash from Japan that I use daily. Being a big fan of the original Airy Whip from Softymo this is of course, a fast fav for me :)

If you’re looking for a basic cleanser that you can use after a pre-wash with cleansing oil this does the trick nicely!

Softymo Speedy Cleansing Foam creates dense foam when dispensed using the pump. It lathers up nicely and whisks away minor makeup, dirt, and oil with a slick collagen-like feel that leaves skin feeling soft and smooth after use. The moisturizing feel as you wash doesn’t carry over after you’ve dried off but it doesn’t leave skin tight either after use just smooth and nice and soft. It has a soft fresh floral scent that’s not overpowering and the cleanser on a whole is very mild so it should be suitable for many skin types.

I’m an absolute mush for foaming cleansers and this is one of my very favorites to use. It’s cheap (around $7-$10 online or in smaller Asian beauty stores if you live in an Asian community or by one), quickly cleanses my face, and doesn’t make my skin feel two sizes too small.

If you’re hunting out a basic cleanser you should def give a whirl. I typically use it after I’ve removed most of my makeup with cleansing oil.

Loves it.

Sasa.com carries it I believe. I get mine at Hmart for around six bucks I believe.

Tried it?

Love it?

Do share!

Any foaming cleansers you’d recommend?

      same concept/formula little slicker during the wash but very similar kira!

    I can’t remember if you double wash or not… if you do is this your step #1 or #2?

    I like the sound of foaming washes that don’t dry the skin out because I like to double cleanse.

      I do sometimes really depends, I typically remove with cleansing oil following up with foaming wash if I am not being lazy ;-D

    I tried BB Cleanser from skin79 and I liked the fact it removes even the sunscreen without drying my face which is especially appreciated in winter season.


  • 1/12/13 3:59 Fuu:

    Hmmmm it says on the packaging that it is a Make-up Remover+Face Cleansing. Does it remover make-up all right?


    • 1/14/13 12:17 the Muse:
